Our Puerto Rico team, together with the INprende business platform, has developed a Business Initiative program called Stimulate Your Ideas, a three-stage project designed to encourage young people aged 17 to 23 to give free rein to their dreams and implement their projects.
After an invitation that was made through the INprende social media and the general information sent to local schools and universities, the first phase of the program began.
This stage was opened with an inaugural event held on Friday, October 5, at the Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico, and was attended by high school and college students. What was its goal? Lightning to boost their ideas. A goal that was reached by raising different situations in which they themselves had to identify issues and draft possible solutions.
Soon, 14 students will be selected to develop their business ideas! During this second stage, they will receive training to be able to present their ideas to a jury composed of two representatives from Arcos Dorados, one from INprende and one from a local business institution. The third and final stage will take place on December 7; it will be the grand finale in which the jury will award the prizes in cash to make the three most remarkable business ideas come true.
Congratulations to the Puerto Rico team! May this initiative, which marks a little more our commitment to society, become an example to give free rein to ideas in all markets.
